Running a Calendar Club store is not difficult and if you follow guidelines outlined by Calendar Club, you will generally have few if any problems. Most Store Licensees comply with these simple requirements and the stores that don’t will be warned and if necessary Recoverable Costs are charged.
The Security Deposit is payable for two reasons. Firstly, this is your way of securing your store. By providing your Security Deposit you confirm that you are serious about operating a Calendar Club Store, and that you are committed for the calendar season. Secondly, Calendar Club will be sending you stock, store fixtures and POS machines, which have a value in excess of $100,000. The Security Deposit is a relatively small way in which we can ensure our assets are taken care of properly.
Your Calendar Club store needs to be open every hour that the shopping centre is open. As mentioned in the previous question/answer, you need to have sufficient staff (including yourself) to ensure this occurs. Generally, Store Licensees will make a commitment of between 40 and 50 hours per week themselves, with sufficient good staff to cover other times. However, there are no hard and fast rules. Calendar Club will provide you with suggestions or Staff Rosters as part of our induction and training processes.
If you would like to pursue operating your own Calendar Club store please send us an email with your contact information to: (Australian stores) or (New Zealand stores).
